    Even more of a scammy thing than your usual *coin :eek:

    Yes, let's have a single entity not only control the value of Libra, but also the conversion rates between that and currencies, and not guaranteeing that Libra is backed up with enough assets to cash out if everyone sells off their Libra.

    As much of a pyramid-shaped object a lot of *coins are, at least they tend to have some sort of independent valuation in the form of deliberate deflation and/or distributed miners.

    Who Ends Convertibility of US Dollars to Gold, is the same people doing that again, just with different way. All of this is a part of a new world strategy, The God only can save us from what's coming.

    Well, this is disturbing... hopefully this won't kick off another Bitcoin run up and hence induce another GPU drought, or maybe this will have the opposite effect and make GPU mining unprofitable against the new 5nm ASICs dedicated hardware:

    ASICs are machines built specifically for mining, they don't use consumer GPUs afaik. ASICs outperform consumer GPUs by a large margin, so I don't foresee much competition between the two.
